Send a Soldier a Hug

May 31, 2012; Chapel Hill, NC: Chapel Hill-based Scarffish, the Scarf with the Starfish, is proud to announce a new program starting now. Called “Send A Soldier A hug”, Scarffish sends a free handmade Scarffish to one soldier or military family member per month. Scarffish owner Maureen Dolan Rosen explains her new program: “As the very proud daughter of a WWII veteran, I try as much as possible to support our soldiers, and wanted to just get some hugs out there where they’re most needed. Everybody can use a hug at some point! It’s our small way of saying “thank you” to our men and women in uniform and their families.”
From Maureen Dolan Rosen:
Here’s how it works:
Here in the south we say, “I’m gonna hug you ’round your neck!” But sometimes you can’t be there to hug someone you love, and a Scarffish is the next best thing! We want to send a soldier or military family member whom you know a beautiful handmade Scarffish, for free. No strings, no charge. Here’s how it works:

1. Send us an email and tell us about a soldier, or a soldier’s loved one, whom you think could really use a hug.

2. Each month, we’ll pick a random email from the ones we receive, and pack up a Scarffish from our inventory and ship it to them, from you, as a long-distance “hug around the neck”. It’s that simple.
So send us an email, and let us send out a “hug around the neck” to someone you know who could use one. It’s the next best thing to a hug from you!
And please know that this is not a marketing gimmick: I do not collect emails or addresses, and I do not send out junk mail. This is just my small way of saying thank you.
